Class activities for Monday, October 11

Spelling: We reviewed prefixes, suffixes and base words today.

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences of seven or more words each are due on Fridays.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Some groups worked on visualizing as a reading strategy.

Writing: We reviewed the three main components of a story:

  1. Characters (the people of the story)
  2. Plot (the action of the story)
  3. Setting (the places of the story)

Every story, even personal narratives, have these main ingredients.

A personal narrative is due Friday, October 15. Students should be revising at this time.

Math: We reviewed the trade-first method of subtraction today. Homework is to finish Journal pp. 34-35.

Science: We wrote notes about the circulatory system and started reading about the respiratory system.

Social Studies: We started a preview of American Indian cultural regions by thinking about how America can be divided into regions based on which sports people play (canoeing, surfing, skiing). Homework is to finish Preview 3 p. 15.
